As the road, the car mileage an average of 15% of the fuel economy better than California to reduce the average CO2 emissions. Advantage in the way… – California drivers where miles. -mostly larger. But early sample frankly rather rarely ear when producers launched its engine turbo highly efficient direct-injection: If keep foot on it and use all 553 hp (it was a Ferrari, after all) the efficiency gains are gone.
